REC - Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies
I came across this recipe yesterday in a community recipe cookbook that I had borrowed from a friend. I have not tried the recipe.
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/4 cup oatmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 egg whites or 1 egg
1/2 cup raisins, optional
1/4 cup chopped nuts, optional
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheet. In a small bowl combine oatmeal, baking soda, and spices. In large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, and egg whites or egg until creamy. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in raisins and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on to prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Makes 3 1/2 dozen.
